i've never seen the need for a real name (rather than an IP address)
in resolv.conf, under 1.0... sun-lamp's resolv.conf looks like:
search cs.berkeley.edu berkeley.edu
and it's running mostly-1.0 binaries, and it's an i386.
i set up a 1.0 sparcstation two days ago, and it didn't need
an explicit name; an ipaddr works fine...
i dunno why you're having the problem you are, but i've not seen it...
